Carson is a city in the southwest corner of Los Angeles County, just north of Long Beach. The city is about 13 miles south of Downtown Los Angeles and about 6 miles inland from the Pacific Ocean. Surrounding communities include Torrance, Lomita, and Gardena to the west, Willowbrook and Compton are north, Lakewood and Signal hill are east, and Wilmington is on the south. The I-405 cuts diagonally across the city from southeast to northwest, and the west side is bordered by the I-110 (Harbor Freeway). The city provides the Carson Circuit bus service for the local community; transportation is also available on the L.A. Metro Blue Line and the North-South Shuttle Service.
Some of the attractions available in Carson are CSU Dominguez Hills, a major commuter school, and StubHub Center, a sports complex offering a world-famous soccer stadium. One of the Goodyear blimps is based in Carson, as is the International Printing Museum, and shopping can be enjoyed at the SouthBay pavilion. Carson has large tracts of undeveloped land which is rare for an area so close to downtown Los Angeles, and several large development projects have been proposed through the years including a National Football League stadium to host both the Oakland Raiders and the San Diego Chargers.
Oil was discovered in the 1920’s at Dominguez Hill in Carson, near the site of a famous battle of the Mexican-American War called the Battle of Dominguez Rancho in 1846. Before long, refineries and sprawling industrial complexes were built all around the area leading to a population surge and further development of residential housing. Although most of the oil was pumped up by the 1960’s, there are still many petrochemical industries located in Carson and the surrounding cities. Nisson automobile corporation had its headquarters in Carson until 2006 when they relocated to Tennessee. Carson takes its name from George Henry Carson (1832–1901), a merchant, road builder, rancher and member of the Los Angeles Common Council in the 1850s.
